PLAN AHEAD: USE YOUR YEAR-END DOLLARS TO STOCK UP ON ESSENTIAL IMMUNIZATION RESOURCES FOR 2005--OR TO CONTRIBUTE TO IAC

Does it look like your department or organization will be unable to use up its annual budget by the end of the year? If so, the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC) suggests you use your year-end dollars NOW to place an order for bulk quantities of essential immunization resources you'll need in 2005.

In the past several years, IAC has shipped more than two million items to providers around the world. Some of the most popular items include the following: (1) the Adults Only Vaccination kit (2) the video "Immunization Techniques: Safe, Effective, Caring," (3) Adult Immunization Record Cards, and (4) the Slide Set of Vaccine-Preventable Diseases.

Order these popular items in bulk, and you'll receive substantial discounts. Also, please note there is no shipping charge for small orders shipped by fourth-class mail within the United States. In addition, with a contribution of $75 or more, you'll receive a CD of more than 150 of IAC's most popular print pieces (for information, see the CONTRIBUTE $75 OR MORE section toward the end of this article).


ADULTS ONLY VACCINATION KIT
The heart of the kit is the 157-page guide, "Adults Only Vaccination: A Step-by-Step Guide." This comprehensive resource includes practical information on ALL aspects of adult immunization. It presents clear, authoritative, CDC-reviewed material on administering adult vaccines, educating patients about them, billing for them, and much more. It is indispensable for any setting where adults are immunized, such as STD clinics, family planning clinics, college health services, OB/GYN practices, and prisons. In addition, the kit includes two "how-to" instructional videos: Immunization Techniques: Safe, Effective, Caring (described below) and CDC's new "How to Protect Your Vaccine Supply."

IF YOU VACCINATE ADULTS, YOU CAN'T AFFORD TO BE WITHOUT THE KIT!

For comprehensive information about the kit--including a look at the guide's many worksheets, checklists, protocols, and educational materials--visit IAC's website at http://www.immunize.org/guide

$75 per kit; special discount pricing is available for orders of 10 copies or more. To order online or by fax or mail, using a credit card, purchase order, or check, go to: http://www.immunize.org/guide Click on the appropriate link.


IMMUNIZATION TECHNIQUES VIDEO
You can ensure your staff has expertise in administering vaccines by ordering and showing them the video "Immunization Techniques: Safe, Effective, Caring." Developed by the California Department of Health Services Immunization Branch and a team of national experts, the 35-minute video presents abundant practical information on vaccinating people of all ages. An excellent tool for training new staff and refreshing the skills of experienced staff, the video comes with presenter notes and a skills checklist. $30 each; discounts for orders of 20 or more--please call (651) 647-9009.

ADULT IMMUNIZATION RECORD CARDS. Invaluable for educating adults that immunization is a lifelong process, the card lists seven vaccines for adults. Use the card during patient visits to discuss a patient's vaccination status with them; then give it to them and encourage them to put it in their wallet and use it to keep track of their next vaccination due date. Printed on smudge-proof, rip-proof, waterproof paper, the card is intended for lifelong use.

The cost for one 250-count box is $30; two boxes (500 cards), $55; three boxes (750 cards), $75; four boxes (1,000 cards), $90. Additional pricing for larger quantities can be found on the online order form (see the link below). Discounts for orders of more than 50,000 cards--please call (651) 647-9009.

SLIDE SET OF VACCINE-PREVENTABLE DISEASES. This powerful visual aid is intended for clinic staff and community outreach workers who make immunization presentations. It includes 28 color slides of children and adults with vaccine-preventable diseases. When you show your patients a picture of an infant with severe varicella disease or other infections, they will begin to understand the seriousness of the diseases that vaccines can prevent. Each riveting image is easily worth more than a thousand words.

To assist you with slide presentations, an English-language script is included. A Spanish-language script is available on request. $25 per set.
